Composite Restorations (Fillings): Composite fillings are a tooth colored resin material that is closely matched to the shade of existing teeth. They are bonded to the tooth structure which provides further support. As well as using the composite for restoring decay, they are also used to repair chipped, broken, or worn teeth. In most circumstanced less tooth structure needs to be removed when compared to amalgam (metal alloy) fillings when removing decay and prepping the tooth for a filling. Back to Top


Crowns and Bridges: Crowns and bridges are both a type of ‘fixed’ prosthetic. Different from removable prosthetics such as dentures or partials, which can be removed and cleaned daily. Crowns and bridges are cemented to existing teeth or implants.
   Crowns are used to cover or ‘cap’ a tooth to strengthen it. There are different materials a crown can be made with depending on which best fits your needs. Porcelain, or resin based can be matched to the shade of your existing teeth. Other materials may include, but are not limited to, gold, metal alloys, or acrylic. You may need a crown to restore a tooth with a large filling and minimal tooth structure, if you have a fracture, to cover a dental implant, or after Root Canal Therapy. There are just some needs for a crown. Needing a crown is not limited to the reasons listed.
   A bridge may be an option if you are missing one or more teeth in a specific area. Gaps left by missing teeth cause the surrounding teeth to drift, trying to fill the empty space. This results in further problems like biting or occlusion issues and gum disease. Bridges are cemented to the natural teeth on both sides of the space caused by the missing tooth or teeth. These teeth are prepped to receive the bridge, serving as anchors. Like crowns, you have a choice of which material is used for your bridge. Back to Top


Endodontic Therapy (Root canals): Although hearing you need a root canal may sound like a big procedure, in reality it takes no longer than a few fillings. A ‘root canal’ or RCT is a treatment that saves and repairs a tooth with large decay affecting the nerve. During RCT the pulp and nerve of the tooth are removed, cleaned very well, and sealed. This procedure may take one or more appointments. Afterwards, it is necessary to have a permanent restoration and a crown to prevent the tooth from being re-infected or fractured. Back to Top


Dentures, Partials, and Repairs: Complete dentures are one of the options for patients with no natural teeth remaining. There are two types of procedures for dentures ‘traditional’ or ‘immediate’. The process for traditional dentures begins after teeth have been extracted if necessary and the healing process is over. After try-ins and adjustments, your traditional denture is ready to be delivered in about eight to twelve weeks. Unlike traditional dentures immediate dentures are made ahead of time and are ready for delivery immediately after teeth are extracted if necessary. This means you won’t be without teeth during the healing process. However, after the teeth are removed bone and gum tissue shrink and change shape, requiring more adjustments than a traditional denture.
   Partial dentures are used to replace one or more missing teeth. Like a complete denture, partial dentures are removable. They are made with a combination of materials including acrylic and metal. Metal clasps are used to ‘anchor’ the partial to existing teeth. Modifications are made to existing natural teeth to better receive the partial. As well as new dentures and partials, we also offer some same day repairs for existing removable prosthetics (dentures and partials.
   For same day repairs; such as relines, as well as more complex repairs for dentures or partials, we use a local dental lab. Back to Top


Dental Veneers: Dental veneers are a form of cosmetic dentistry in which a porcelain ‘shell’ is placed over the facial aspect of an existing natural tooth to correct a number of different problems. Whether your teeth have worn enamel or you simply do not like the way they look, veneers may be an option for you. Uneven, miss-shaped or widely spaced teeth are other reasons you may be interested in veneers. Because the removal of natural teeth is necessary and permanent, less invasive options may be offered first. Back to Top
